Natalya Mihailova | 17 October 2014
October 16, 2014. Sergei Sobyanin, the mayor of Moscow, has signed an act naming an avenue after Patriarch Alexy II.

Interfax-Religion, the Russian news agency, has reported that the avenue is situated in the Orehovo-Borisovo District, which begins at the Kashirsky highway and continues to the main entrance of the Holy Trinity Church.

The mayor has thereby supported the city’s Inter-Institutional Commission’s decision to give names to territorial units, including streets, subway stations, organizations, and other units of the capital.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
